Before berry season ends, I should share this super delicious summer ice cream recipe with you!
I’ve finally figured how to work my 220v machine so I don’t blow a fuse. That way I can fulfill my marriage vows of making homemade ice cream for my husband at least once a year. He’s one lucky guy, let me tell you!
From one of my favorite foodie blogs, October Farm, I stumbled upon this recipe for blackberry & chocolate chip ice cream on another blog called Gourmandistan, written by a food-loving couple in Kentucky. This recipe caught my eye because the market stalls at Hala Mirowska have been flooded with berries.

I can make only so many berry-flavored vodkas as well as freeze and eat so many berries for breakfast, so of course they must be used in desserts.
I actually love making ice cream and probably could make it in my sleep. I used to make several ice cream batches a day when I worked in restaurants full-time. Now, I only make ice cream as an occasional treat at home.
Homemade ice cream is really worth the effort, especially when there's chocolate involved! I promise!
Blackberry & Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
, purée this mixture with a hand stick blender or in a food processor. Strain through a fine-meshed strainer to remove the seeds. Set aside to cool.
Note: We like dark chocolate, but we found the 90% chocolate bar to be too bitter. Next time, I’d stick with using 60 or 70% dark chocolate.
